    After three years, the Antitrust Modernization Commission (AMC) has released its report on U.S. antitrust laws to President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress.
    As a part of its ongoing alliance with the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) announced a free online training course, Operating Motor Vehicles: A Guide for Employees in the Automotive Repair Industry.
    The Women’s Industry Network (WIN) conference held April 29-May 1, 2007 at the Hilton Airport in Phoenix, Arizona reached full capacity with 100 registrants nearly a month before the start of the conference.
    As the Congressional-established Antitrust Modernization Commission (AMC) issued its report last month, many in the collision industry are wondering – and discussing – what it may mean for the insurance industry’s antitrust exemption.
        “I think it would be foolish to assume that repealing the McCarran-Ferguson Act is a panacea for all the ills in the collision industry,” Ohio attorney Erica Eversman of Vehicle Information Services, Inc., said.
     The SCRS celebrated its 25th anniversary in April at an event in Atlanta that gathered many of the association’s early founders and leaders, and that included awards presentations, the election of a new chairman, a presentation by a lawyer on the McCarran-Ferguson Act, and a dinner celebrating the group’s history and accomplishments. At that dinner, SCRS Executive Director Dan Risley read a passage from a 1982 letter the newly formed association had sent out to recruit members.
    Martin Auto Color of Van Nuys, California, was presented the PPG Platinum Distributor of the Year Award at an awards banquet held during the annual PPG Platinum Distributor Conference in February at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Florida.
